I am an accredited Triathlon Australia Performance Coach and age group athlete. I have a passion to help other age groupers achieve their potential. Having a coach is not just for the elite age grouper or professional - it is for anyone who wants to be the best they can be. So whether your goal is to finish your first long distance triathlon or qualify for an age group world championship event I would like to help you get there whilst maintaining health and balance in your life.

I like to describe myself as a passionate learner and lover of both the sport of triathlon and the art & science of coaching. A late bloomer athletically, I came to triathlon in my mid 40's as a non swimmer with a blown out ACL and no sporting background. Rather than see this as a negative as a coach - I see this as a positive. In other words I know exactly where the vast majority of working age groupers and those new to the sport are coming from. Since getting my first bike and managing to string together a few laps of the pool I have gone on to compete in all race distances and both 70.3 and Ironman distance world championships (twice). A professional science background has seen me continue to explore, research and reflect on my coaching practice. I particularly enjoy working with juniors, women and those newer to the sport who want to perform to their best potential. Underpinning all my coaching practice is the strong belief that EVERYONE no matter their experience or perceived athletic ability should be able to access quality coaching knowledge and support to enhance their enjoyment and participation in this great sport.
